No Face Costume Tutorial
Black fabric (we used 6 yards of a billowy, slightly stretchy fabric, split into 3 yard sections -you may need longer depending upon your height)
Foam or cardboard (we used EVA foam floor mats to create the mask)
Paint (acrylic white, red, and black)
Helmet, hardhat, or other object to give extra height to your mask (we used extra foam and a plastic bowl)
Black, elbow length gloves
Black nylons or sheer fabric
Chocolate coins or gold candy to use as a prop to hand out (Optional)
1. The first piece of fabric will be used as a basic poncho. Fold the 3 yards in half and cut a small slit for your head to fit through. Trim off the bottom 4 corners to round them out.
4. Glue black nylons or a sheer fabric to the back openings of your mask. It will look solid from the front, but will be see-through from the back side (remember, the mouth opening will be at eye level).
Alternatively, lay your fabric down on the floor with the outside of the fabric facing the floor. Place your mask face down on top of the open hole you cut out. Take the inside edge of the cut hole and fold it back towards the outer edge of the mask. Staple all around the edges.
This will be the layer you wear over your poncho.
Chihiro Costume Tutorial
Salmon colored nursing scrubs (top & bottom)
Long white ribbon or white fabric to sew
Long maroon ribbon or maroon fabric to sew
String or shoe laces (for tying pant legs -optional)
Sewing machine & thread or fabric glue & fray check
Props- Boh mouse plush, soot sprite (puff ball or pipe cleaners with googly eyes), bathhouse bath token (painted cardboard or wood chip) -Optional
1. Cut your scrub pants off below the knees.
My pants weren't quite as baggy as Chihiro's, but I still wanted to bunch and tie them up above the knee. I cut a 2 inch slit on the outside of each pant leg. I then folded the bottom edge up and "hemmed" the pants, making sure to leave a channel in which to thread a shoe lace through as my pant leg ties. I did this step with my pants inside out for sewing ease.
